Congressman Daniel Webster, Representative for the 10th Congressional District, was honored last week by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with the "Spirit of Enterprise Award."

Webster was presented with the award by Clark Thomason, manager of the South East region for the U.S. Chamber at the monthly breakfast meeting of the South Lake Chamber of Commerce.

Webster was recognized for his pro business voting record in Congress. Webster has been a champion for small businesses throughout his career.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently released its How They Voted scorecard, an effort that began 50 years ago, and also honored 208 members of the House of Representatives and 40 members of the Senate with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award, given in recognition of their support of pro-growth, pro-jobs policies during the second session of the 113th Congress.

"For 50 years, through our "How They Voted" scorecard, the U.S. Chamber has been recognizing legislators from both sides of the aisle who have worked to pass legislation and enact policies that bolster our country's economy, create jobs and keep our nation's spirit of enterprise alive," U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said.

"The Spirit of Enterprise award honors those members of Congress who have recognized the need and shown a commitment to pro-growth policies in the second session of the 113th Congress."

Members who supported the Chamber's position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award. Webster had a 79 percent score for 2014 and a career record of 87 percent.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than three million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
